Motor locked up and there isn't any tangled thread anywhere in the machine. Pressed the OK button and it still is jammed


try unthreading completely and make sure that the bobbin casing allows thread to come up when you rethread the machine. Make sure that you are turning the handwheel towards you not clockwise, because you can mess up the timing. Read the manual for other suggestions.

The needle on my brother XL 5340 sewing machine does not appear to go down far enough to catch the lower thread.


Hi. Check to make sure that the flat side of the needle shank is facing to the rear (away from you), that the needle isn't bent, and that it is inserted as far up as it will go.

Hope this helps,

Robbie

Does the Brother XL-5340 do an overlock stitch? If it does do I need to change the foot and to which foot? Thanks


There is an overedge stitch (page 38) that uses the regular presser foot.

If you do not have a manual, you can download (free) from the Brother site.

Machine not sewing


Have you checked that the tiny screw in the bobbin is not loose, sometimes this creates this problem for me or if the bobbin size is incorrect.

Try a new needle, making sure it is put in properly. A bent needle can break thread. Make sure top tension is set properly.
